In many fields of study, it is important to know how different populations are genetically. Commonly used measures such as FST and its derivatives based on gene identity probabilities do not reliably reflect difference, as they can be maximal when almost all populations are identical and very small when populations are completely distinct. Compositional differentiation, in contrast, is maximal only for completely distinct populations. Moreover, underlying forces of fragmentation that act on… CONTINUE READING
